Waterford "The Cuvée" Single Malt Irish Whiskey
The Waterford Distillery was created in 2015 by converting a former Guinness Brewery in Waterford, in the very south of Ireland. The distillery's founder Mark Reynier was formerly the mastermind behind the rebuilding of Bruichladdich, the famed Islay Distillery. The former wine merchant approaches Whisky production in a similar way to wine production. He wants to capture the terroir of the grain in his Whisky.
About The Cuvée:
We rigorously apply the ancient terroir methodology to today’s verdant landscape of Ireland, home of the world’s finest barley. Now for the first time in single malt whisky - unashamedly inspired by the legendary château of France - we reach the apogee of this radical philosophy.
The Cuvée, a synthesis of Single Farm Origins, an enigmatic gestalt, a milestone in our journey. The definitive Waterford Whisky. Our LodeStar.
